Yep a great vid, someone on here mentioned that once you get 'it' it just becomes second nature, can totally relate to that.

I am starting to get the hang of it, some parts of footwork now I don't think about it just happens and you know when your feet are in the right spot to go for a turn.

The shuffle back to the tail was the first piece of footwork I feel I got dialled in. My Infinity RNB has a big nose and sometimes I am right up there paddling for a wave, as soon as I feel that 'catch' I start heading back to the tail.

The bottom turn footwork is coming together and a couple of times have had the bottom turn into a roundhouse link up - still a bit hit and miss on that one, I think sometimes I go for that when the wave is not really there for it - just feels so good to pull that one off though!
